The travellers behind See the South Island
A local and an expat on a mission to see all that the South Island has to offer. We just finished a two year round the world trip and decided to call New Zealand’s ultimate island home. From snow-capped mountains to deserted beaches, we’ll show you the best places to go, whether you’re a tourist planning a trip to New Zealand or a local wanting to discover more of your own backyard.
Gia — The Expat
Hailing from the mean streets of Manila, Gia took two years away from her career to travel world. She loves to cook, suffers from motion sickness and will soon be supporting her struggling blogger husband as he tries to avoid getting a proper job.

Jon — The Local
Born in the sprawling metropolis of Timaru, Jon has spent the last six years living and travelling abroad. He runs a moderately successful travel blog, loves hiking and hates talking about himself in the third person, so he’s going to stop now.
